Since 2004 Maureen has been teaching yoga. From the very first class she took in 1999, she knew she wanted to teach yoga. Five years later, she took her first teacher training and she has been teaching students from all over the world ever since.
Her yoga journey started out in a time her her life when she was still seeking a deeper meaning of life and the Universe. All she knew, after that very first yoga class was that she finally felt at peace. Because of this she wanted to spread the peace she had gained with others.
It’s an understatement to say that Maureen takes her yoga practice seriously. In 2007, she decided to make her first trip to India, where she knew she could learn the historical roots of yoga, more specifically, Ashtanga Yoga. After that first trip, spending two months studying with great teachers in Mysore, she vowed to continue her studies in the years following.
Fast forward many trips back to India and years of dedicated practice, Maureen has developed into a knowledgeable yoga teacher, helping her students grow and even become teachers themselves. She has led many new students into becoming highly qualified yoga teachers. Maureen’s enthusiasm for yoga and her devotion to her students has made her one of the most respected teachers around.
Maureen has a strong but soft way about her. She gives you the space to grow into the practice but encourages you without letting you even think about your limitations. When she comes to teach us, she is truly a teacher who guides you to be your best and see your full potential.~Marco Jimenez @ZenFit506 Costa Rica
Over the years, Maureen has taught students all over the world at yoga workshops, in their private residences, yoga studios, and online. She continues to train yoga teachers as well as offering continuing education credits.
Whether you are beginner or advanced, you will benefit from Maureen’s teaching. She takes a “Living Yoga” approach to her methods. It’s not just about the postures. The postures help us to become healthier in our bodies and minds. But to truly be Living Yoga, you must embrace all the parts of yoga and how the way we live affect the planet and it’s people. This is the softness that she is described to possess. Take the postures, turn them into something more meaningful. When you learn from Maureen, you truly get a holistic approach to learning how yoga can benefit you and humanity.
